in recent years, in italy, corporations disregard labor’s rights and cut down their welfare by saying an excuse of european economic crisis. among those affected by this wave of austerity, a group of migrant workers were the most vulnerable.
despite of the indifferent atmosphere dominating traditional labor unions, a group of migrant workers in the logistic industry from north italy successfully united the oppressed workers from different places, with the assistance from s.i. cobas union. through uniting the workers and providing mutual aid in each others’ protests, they successfully stop the worsening working condition.
besides the oppressed workers, students, community organizations also got involved in the movement. given that participants may have different identities and action roles, they all highlighted the importance of people’s mutual aid and solidarity. the unity among grassroots not only can form a strong force to fight for a better working condition, making “collective" as a powerful bargaining chip on the negotiation table, but also can open up a larger space for discussing about life changing.
